The Coronavirus pandemic has taken hold in the United States, and rocked the sports industries in the country. The major team sports in season have either suspended or cancelled games, and fans are being left without live events to watch. Mixed Martial Arts is ready to step up to fill the need, and they're making some changes to do it safely . For events later this month, they'll move fight cards into a private facility owned by the sport, and for this week they're going to fight in an arena with no fans in attendance.

That doesn't mean you should expect less excitement, since this UFC Fight Night is headlined by two fighters with reputations for stoppages. And because of the Coronavirus and the changes it's made to fans being able to attend events, the fight now will be available on ESPN. You can watch this event live when you stream Lee vs. Oliveira in UFC Fight Night Brasilia on ESPN+.

UFC Fight Night Brasilia: Lee vs. Oliveira — The Main Event Preview

Kevin "The Motown Phenom" Lee (18-5) is the eighth ranked lightweight contender, and he's looking to put one of the worst stretches of his career behind him. Lee has lost three of his last five fights, dating back to his fight with Tony Ferguson for the interim Lightweight title just over two years ago. This run of fights also included a catchweight fight where he missed weight, and a failed attempt to move up to Welterweight. Now Lee is back at Lightweight, and while he may have no chance to face off against champ Khabib Nurmagomedov, he surely would like to score another win and maybe move up to some bigger fights in a crowded division.

Charles "Do Bronx" Oliveira (28-8) is the thirteenth ranked lightweight fighter, yet he's been a red hot fighter recently. Over the last twenty months, Oliveira has fought six times and he's been undefeated in that stretch. In fact, he scored Performance of the Night bonus in five of those six fights, with three of them in his home country of Brazil. Now he's fighting in the nation's capital, and hoping to elevate his lightweight ranking after a long stretch at Featherweight. Can Oliveira be more than just a stepping stone for Lee's career rebuild?
